Penn State Running Back Noah Cain Enters Transfer Portal

Update, 4:43 p.m.: Noah Cain made things official Thursday afternoon when he announced on Twitter that he’s in the NCAA transfer portal.

“Penn State has provided me with a myriad of opportunities athletically, academically, civically, and socially…,” Cain said. “With that said, after discussions with my family and seeking God’s guidance, I have entered the NCAA Transfer Portal.”

The running back also added that he’ll graduate from Penn State this semester.

Original Story: Penn State running back Noah Cain has reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to reports from 247Sports, The Athletic, and more.

The junior running back appeared in 23 games over his Penn State career, totaling 806 rushing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns on 193 carries. Cain also amassed 166 receiving yards on 26 career catches.

Cain recently struggled with injuries after sustaining a season-ending injury on the first drive of the 2020 season. In his 2021 comeback, Cain still managed to lead the Nittany Lions in rushing touchdowns (four) and recorded the team’s second-highest rushing total (350 yards) on the season.

Cain committed to Penn State in 2018 as the No. 14-ranked running back in the country and subsequently set a program record for freshman rushing touchdowns with eight scores.

As he potentially browses for a new home, Cain carries two years of remaining eligibility.

Should Penn State lose Cain’s services for good, it’ll likely rely on Keyvone Lee as its go-to starter. Lee racked up two rushing touchdowns and 530 rushing yards on 108 carries this season. Of course, highly touted running back prospect Nicholas Singleton will also join the Nittany Lions’ locker room next season.
